Exhibiting Artists include:

John Alford, Maximiliion Bacanello, Graham Cox RCA, Barbara Goolden and a selection of works from our feature artist, Phil Tufnell.


Phil says, "I love art. In fact, it's a close call between art and cricket! It's fantastic to get down to my studio , where I've got everything I need and I get tons of inspiration.

I think people are sometimes surprised that art is my thing. I got an O level in art at school (my only one – I was too busy playing cricket!) and my Dad was a silversmith, so there's a history of creativity in my family. I even worked with my Dad for a while when I was turning professional, and I loved it.

I'm not a landscape water-colourist or anything – you won't bump into me and my easel on a country walk! Instead, I love to work in abstract art and with different techniques. My studio is full of spray-paint cans, because I really like the effects I can create."
